When Balmain first walked this military look down the runway I, along with every fashion editor on the planet, did a collective swoon. Now it’s on sale at Net-a-Porter’s discount site the Outnet. Now, “on sale” is a relative term, 80% off of a $1400 distressed t-shirt is still way too much to pay for a holey piece of army green cotton. So there’s that issue.
And then there’s the cold hard reality. If price alone isn’t enough to dissuade me from pulling out my trusty credit card, then the fact that I would look really ridiculous marching to pick up my son from Pre-K in most of these pieces. Take the holy tee for instance, a little drafty, and frankly I don’t own a bra that I’d like to share with the entire PTA.
Shucks. Foiled again by real life. I HATE it when that happens.
